Google Now Launcher update now offers Lollipop design to older devices

Google Now Launcher on the Nexus 10

Here’s some great news for fans of pure Android, especially those who are afraid of rooting their devices. The Google Now Launcher, made directly by Google, now brings a Lollipop look to every device running at least Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

It’s completely the same as stock Lollipop with the exception that the left-most home screen is Google Now. Therefore, swiping to the far left allows you to view cards related to your searches, your location, recommended websites, favorite sports teams, stocks, and so forth. You can even use voice commands on this screen.

Android Central notes that the only downside of the launcher is the lack of customization seen on other launchers. However, it adds that the Google Launcher offers high stability, Material Design, and the vanilla Android experience. You can get it in the link below.
